MITCHELLA REPENS.--Partridge Berry. North America, 1761. A low-growing,

creeping plant, having oval, persistent leaves, white flowers, and

brilliant scarlet fruit. It is a neat little bog plant, resembling

Fuchsia procumbens in habit, and with bunches of the brightest

Cotoneaster-like fruit. For rock gardening, or planting on the margins

of beds in light, peaty soil, this is one of the handsomest and most

beautiful of hardy creeping shrubs.
